"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Do you eat salads?

Old school bodybuilders regularly consumed huge salads. Fresh, mostly raw, they made them as they preferred, as their salads came in many varieties.

I eat salads.

The only bummer is they take so long to eat and contain little calories, I always accompany them with something else that is more calorie dense. There is more to life than macronutrients (carbs, protein, fats), micronutrients are good too.

My usual ingredients:
Lettuce
Capsicum (different colours)
Cucumber
Tomato
Sprouts (I try for broccoli if I can get them)


I hadn't thought of beetroot, that's a good one, I'll have to try it.

Greek Salad ("Horiatiki"= Tomatoes, cuccumber, onion, sometimes peppers, feta cheese and olives, virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, some lemon-juice) with a "side dish" of lamb or pork chops is my all time favorite.

Spinach-salad with bacon, feta, dressing like above (minus the oregano) is a close second.

Then everything what can be done with tomatoes (with mozzarella, with aceto balsamico and garlic etc.). Just love'em!

For right now while it is summer i do. I am currently at the body fat that i am happy with, which means i can take my shirt off with no shame, so when winter rolls around again i will still eat them but less frequently then 5-6 days a week.

I use
Half head of iceberg lettuce
all sorts of vegetables:
carrots
broccoli
peppers
onion
garlic
cauliflower
not all at once but those are the staples.

Then i top it with milled flax seed which has a nice granola crunch to it and then balsamic vinegar and red wine balasmic vinegar.

But this is always, always accompanied by protien like egg omelet, lean meats, fish

It's good and fills me up without a ton of calories.

Hi Franco,



I understand Greek men eat their greens religiously. Are you Greek?

I'm hoping you know where to get "good" olive oil at. Where and what brands? I know Costco has the Kirkland brands for olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

When I make a salad, I put in what ever lettuce we have in the fridge, plus some raw veggies. I also add 3-4 ounces of chicken or lean beef, sometimes a can of tuna. It's a good way to get a lot of veggies, and protien without a lot of calories. Just watch the dressing.

If it counts that I was working and living in greece for 3 years, then yes. ;-)
Actually I'm italo-german and work and live for now in russia(moscow - not the best place to find reasonable olive oil for an acceptable price).
So, I'm the wrong adress for american sources, sorry.

My main lunch is a salad every day. Its a bit comical, here I am, somewhat in shape, but the tools I work with (IT dept.) all eat like crap, they look like crap, none of them work out (except for one buddy), and then I climb the 14 flights of stairs when Im done (300 + stairs), then I go for a 20 minute walk. They think I.m nuts, hey, maybe they're right.
